Burnley manager Owen Coyle is over the moon after taking another big Premiership scalp today. The 1-0 win over Everton follows quickly after the win over the Premiership Champions Man Utd with the same scoreline. But in both games their opponents missed a penalty which would have been the equalizer.
Now they are facing anoyther difficult tie next week at Stamford Bridge, but Coyle has promised that he will still carry on with Burnleys attacking play.
Speaking straight after the win over Everton he said: “I believe we were the better team, but the big moment of the game was the penalty. The players are adamant that there wasn’t any contact, but it was a gilt-edged chance to equalise that went by.
“We started at a terrific pace and with quality football, the players did everything we asked of them. We were 1-0 up and still put three strikers on, that’s the way we are going to play.
“We have had a great week, but that’s all it is. We will still be favourites for relegation. But the good thing is we have points on the board. It’s Chelsea next and we will be respectful but we will look to go and play our game by committing men forward.”
You have to give the man full marks for bravery. It seems to be working for him so far.
